Interviews

To offer further insight into a selection of our artists for Counterflows At Home we have commissioned some writers, commentators and fellow musicians to pose some questions, to examine what the artists have created and also to find out a little more about what makes them tick. Edward Sanderson, Stewart Smith and Khyam Alammi have taken on the brief with fascinating and in-depth results. And of course there is also a unnerving case of self examination by the wonderful Mazen Kerbaj.
